Morphine (commonly shortened to "Morph" by players) is a Medical item that can be purchased from (but not sold to) the Pharmacy.

Unlike Blood Bags, Morphine can be used by any player to reduce Hospital time.

The Morphine was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.

Obtaining

Morphine is primarily obtained by opening Boxes of Medical Supplies, which have a chance to give 20 Morphines. It can also be purchased at the Pharmacy, found through city finds, given as a mystery gift from the Wheel of Mediocrity, and obtained from the Medical job special to steal Morphine for seven Medical Points once a player reaches the rank of GP.

Morphine can also be purchased from the Mission reward shop in varying quantities.

Quantity Cost

50 ~216-260 Mission reward credits
100 ~410-448 Mission reward credits

Usage

Using Morphine will increase a player's Life by 15% of its maximum, increase medical cooldown by 20 minutes and reduce Hospital time by 70 minutes if a player is in the hospital. While Morphine's life gain and hospital reduction are inferior to Blood Bags, Morphine has the benefit of being usable by anyone.

Historical Notes

At release, Morphine took 100 minutes off a players hospital time but did not restore any life and had no cooldown. [1] Medical cooldown was added in a 2012 update [2], the Medical 2.0 update in 2015 gave Morphine the ability to restore life, [3] and the Medical Revamp 2021 changed the hospital time removal to 70 minutes. [4]

Prior to the release of Blood Bags in the Medical 2.0 update, Morphine was the strongest Medical item outside of Opium, and along with Revives was the most commonly used method of getting out of the Hospital.

Morphine was originally only obtainable through city finds and the Medical job special, and its price (along with the price of the First Aid Kit and Small First Aid Kit) steadily increased in the early years of the game (peaking out just above $40k), until the Box of Medical Supplies was added in 2008.

Players were able to buy items from Bazaars while in Jail or Hospital for the first few years after Bazaar's release, which lead to Bazaar owners marketing overpriced Morphine and other medical items to players stuck in the Hospital. This lead to Bazaars no longer being accessible while in the Hospital.
